When the iconic Sahara Hotel & Casino finally closed its doors in May of 2011, many wondered what was next as the popular Rat Pack era hotel ended a mighty 59 year run in Las Vegas. Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr, Joey Bishop, Peter Lawford and other Hollywood celebrities made it a famous Vegas hotspot.
Well this August, the transformation will be completed. The luxurious new SLS Las Vegas resort will open and once again and the world will take notice.
Sam Nazarian is the CEO of SBE Entertainment and recently announced the scheduled Las Vegas Strip opening over Labor Day weekend – August 29 to September 1.
The new SLS Las Vegas resort will remind people of the Hollywood Boulevard and the Sunset Strip in Southern California, but will take on an ultramodern look and style.
The Sahara hotel & casino was not aging well, but after over $400-million in restoration and remodeling, the SLS Las Vegas will emerge as a luxury destination with more than 1,600 guest rooms and suites, plus numerous restaurants and nightclubs.
Sam Nazarian was quoted, “It’s been an incredible journey these past few years and I’m proud and humbled by some big news — SLS Las Vegas is officially opening Labor Day Weekend 2014. Looking forward to toasting the Strip’s next chapter with you! We are ‘back’ indeed!”
